This is Chris barrow with the newsroom, 200 days into the Russian invasion Ukraine appears to be on the front foot.

So the local authorities in kharkiv and sumer obelisk say that they are already working on fixing their problems with electricity, but currently we've heard about difficulties with electricity also in poltava and Zappos regions. Those are located in the center and also Donetsk region in the east. Valerie marchenko is the mayor of issu, one of the towns which has been recaptured by Ukraine's forces during their offensive in the kharkiv region, he told us about the situation in the city.

In fact, it already is. Here in the city of harkey, much of the city is without power and water. Now the mayor says there have been a series of strikes on infrastructure targets. He's blaming the Russians saying that this is revenge cynical revenge, she says, for the army's recent successes in battle and we heard what sounded like two more missiles strikes ourselves.
